                    • The Arizona Women’s Collaborative is a group of female-identifying artists working synergistically across disciplines. Through cooperative composition, AWC seeks to foster opportunities for artists from
                    • different fields—including creative writing, dance, music, and the visual arts—to use their creative expression for positive change. Founding members—Stephanie Sadownik, Erica Glenn, Kalani Pickhart, and Jenny Irish, brought together colleagues from their perspective fields. Participants were then placed in creative groups to interface on matters concerning women. These conversations served as the basis of their collaborative output in the form of art song, or poetry set to music. In this spirit, AWC is facilitating cross-disciplinary partnerships between student-artists, alumni, and faculty, beginning by pairing students from Arizona State University's nationally ranked MFA Program in Creative Writing with students in Music Composition and Music Performance.
